    Coming in April for Flower and Garden, DVC so using TIW not DDP. Can you still get a girft card to use at the booths for snacks? If so where do I purchase and how much can you put on it? If I don't use it all can I use it for Wine and Food in Sept?

    Hi Deborah,

    Nice to hear from you again! The EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival is in full bloom, and, like you, I can't wait to visit and check out all the topiaries, landscapes and, of course, the special tastes available in the Outdoor Kitchens.

    EPCOT released three special edition gift cards for Flower and Garden this year, each featuring a different design. There's a sunflower, a pink cosmos and one with Spike, the honeybee. Each also has a detachable square of recycled paper that contains wildflower seeds so that you can plant a souvenir of the festival when you get home.

    I always pick up one of the reloadable gift cards on a wristlet for snacking around the Flower and Garden Festival and the EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. It's convenient to have payment right on my wrist. But the main reason I use the gift cards is to keep track of my spending as I make multiple purchases at the Outdoor Kitchens or Global Marketplaces. You can load the gift cards with as little as $15 (I'm not aware of a limit). I put the amount I intend to spend on the card at the start of the day. If it runs out, I can add more. Or, if there's money left over, I tuck the card in my bag for my next visit. The value never expires.

    You can pick up a gift card at any merchandise or food location. I like to grab mine right away when I enter the park, either at Gateway Gifts inside the main entrance or World Traveler near the International Gateway entrance.

    Thanks for coming back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, Deborah. Visit us any time!
